Shape: Formation
Duration:5 seconds
Saw a streaking object for only a few seconds, travelling too fast to be a bird or small engine plane.

I happened to see a streaking object in the sky travelling East. The sun was hitting it, but it was very low in the sky and moving too fast for a bird or small engine plane. I only saw the object for a few seconds and then it disappeared from view behind a mountain area. It could have been a shooting star, but as it was still very light out, that seemed implausible.
